Scott Sinclair (Brisbane, Australia) and Mariam Wallentin (Gothenburg, Sweden), both with long histories in improvised music in their home countries, met when playing the same concert in Sweden in 2006. They immediately found that they had a shared passion for grotesque vocal sounds, accompanying random percussion, and a demented sense of musicality. At times Balloon Party sounds like a group of unsupervised handicapped children having a birthday celebration. Completely live and acoustic, it is at times difficult to think so many sounds and instruments were only played by 2 people.
